Nikon Rumors is expecting to hear an announcement mid-this week that Nikon will release the long awaited AFS 80-400VR. They expect it to be priced at/or around $2,900 in the Japanese market, and perhaps less in the US market. In fact, they are suggesting a "Release Date" of March 14, 2013.

If true, this would be a long awaited release, and a true game changer for some of us that shoot wildlife and action outdoors. I have to admit, if this rumor is correct, I'm disappointed (but not surprised) that the price is so high. Yet another reason I wish Nikon was more Canon-like. Canon would also probably release an AFS 80-400 f4.5-5.6 without VR, and sell it for $1,600. I'd be ALL OVER that.

What do you think? At $2,500-3,000, is this a lens you'll jump at?
